Saturday (March 8):

The Shell Corporation
w/ The Humanoids, Better Days

@ Mad Magician
8 p.m. | $12-$15
St. Louis' own Stevie Stone is signed with Tech N9ne's Strange Music label, fast becoming the go-to source for independent midwest hip-hop. The future is Strange. (DH)

7:30 p.m. | free
This fun, free show celebrates Gerald Good, the engineer behind locally-produced, super rad Physics Punk Pedals, and his 40th birthday. Bonus: Free cupcakes while supplies last! (MS)

Single Mothers
w/ Cathedral Fever, Resolute
@ Blind Tiger
8 p.m. | $7
Blind Tiger is a new-ish joint in Maplewood brought to you from the folks behind the Crow's Nest and the late great Bleeding Deacon. It'll be interesting to see how punk will fill out the huge space (formerly occupied by the Jumpin' Jupiter cabaret). Ooh, and there's pizza.

Also on Sunday, Wakey!Wakey! performs at the Demo.
